Approximate solutions of fractional differential equations with Riesz fractional derivatives in a finite domain

Y. Takeuchi and R. Suda

Abstract
This paper states approximate solutions of fractional differential equations with Riesz fractional derivatives (FDE-RFD) in a finite domain. FDE-RFD are used in many fields, especially in the prediction of the diffusion of radioactive materials [1]. FDE-RFD in an infinite domain have already solved by using fractional Fourier transform [2]. In contrast, we consider how to solve FDE-RFD in a finite domain. In this paper, we assume FDE-RFD in a finite domain can be solved by the method of separation of variables and the analytical solution is constructed by polynomials. As a result, we find the analytical solution can be obtained by solving a linear equation with infinite size, and we get approximate solutions from solving a linear equation which is approximated to finite size. Note that approximate solutions in this paper mean the solutions which are closely related to asymptotic expansions.
